Staged Photographs

SINCE 1995 

Leupold is a photographer who has recognized that being true to reality is not the same as truth, and that some truths and realities are exclusively subjective. His conceptual handling of existing pictorial material investigates the seeming objectivity of our viewpoints and demonstrates the difference between what we have seen before somewhere and what we have never seen at all.
